Mission & Vision

Vision

Hallett Cove East Primary School:

  • Learning for tomorrow’s world

Mission

Our Mission is to ensure that our students are able to successfully interact and achieve within and
beyond their own community, now and in the future.

This may be evidenced by:

A Strong Sense of Identity

  • Students will be resilient and reflective, confident in their own opinions and provide leadership.

Creative Thinking

  • Students will be creative and critical thinkers who draw upon a range of strategies to deal with new situations or information.

Success in Interactions

  • Students will value diversity and successfully interact with others within and beyond their community in a collaborative manner.

Preparedness for the Future

  • Students will demonstrate initiative, enterprise and adaptability and will be able to successfully manage change within their own lives and as part of a global community.

Skill in Communication

  • Students will be able to successfully communicate in a range of settings within and beyond their own community.

Success in Learning

  • Students will develop and apply knowledge, competencies and skills, which enable them to be successful now and in the future.

Self-Directed Learners

  • Students will be able to initiate and implement their own learning plans. Based on constructivist theory, students will be supported in self-assessment procedures in order to reflect on and guide future learning.

Values

The school Values identified by the school community are reflected in the everyday language at
school by staff, parents, students and community members. The Values are

  • Excellence
  • Fairness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility

Our ongoing commitment to our Values is reflected in our Student and Staff Wellbeing programs
including the Year 7 School Leaders Values program, Buddy and assembly programs.
